The Binaural recording technique uses two omnidirectional microphones placed in the ears of a dummy head and torso, also referred to as “Artificial Head”.

Binaural recordings are often used as ambience sound or in virtual reality applications.
This two-channel system emulates the human perception of sound, and will provide the recording with important aural information about the distance and the direction of the sound sources.
Required to be played back on headphones, binaural stereo offers the listener the experience of a spherical sound image, where all the sound sources are reproduced with correct spherical direction.
It is possible to use your own head as “artificial head”. If you place a d:screet™ 4060 Omnidirectional Miniature Microphone
at each ear entrance, you can walk around and create a binaural stereo recording with stunning three-dimensional realism.
